good point, I love the thread, nice posts, always interested in the settings. I have some great candids that my wife grabbed with my 5dmk3 while im not home, she is trained to always spin it to "green" and fire away, if the flash is mounted to turn it on. Im curious to see others settings or what they used in a pinch. While not all candid are completely random and can be captured with some pre thought to settings if they are in manual and require an adjustment. For example a 2nd/3rd shooter whose goal is a photo journalistic approach is setup for getting great candids, im assuming your goal in getting settings was making adjustments in a pinch. even an expected situation requires an adjustment. Although, I had a good laugh with a friend who is an amazing photographer, he handles sales for a photography studio and found out he has a gift for grabbing shots, he does branch into manual settings but has no problem when doing 2nd/3rd shooter, especially 3rd using all auto and jpg. When all the shots are reviewed with the clients they (like many today, whole diff post, take for granted of good portraits and posed shots at events and are thrilled by the shots from a 3rd shooter off in the distnace capturing random moments.) use most of his shots for the album or request digital proofs to show off and post on facebook/etc
anyway sorry for the long reply, nice thread, keep the photos coming.
Don't forget to include camera settings, situation, etc. We are trying to learn from each other how to quickly capture candid moments, NOT how to set up lights, position models, etc.
